Callista Gingrich Confirmed as Ambassador to the Holy See

Callista Gingrich, wife of former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, has just been confirmed to be the new U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See. Gingrich is a lifelong Catholic and sings in the choir at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington.

The Senate voted to confirm her with a vote of 70-23. 

It was first reported that Mrs. Gingrich had been selected as the U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See back in May. 

The Holy See is located in the Vatican City. For an easier explanation as to what exactly this means, check out this video: 

Congratulations to the Gingriches!
